Wild Deer Casually Stroll Through Residential Neighborhood
Although we would like to believe so, there is no real boundary from where the wilderness ends and our concrete jungle begins. The ecosystems don’t work that way. The constant expansion of our ecosystem is barging in on the millions of other ecosystems governed by wild animals, and we are bound to cross paths one way or another.
We, humans, often forget that we were once part of that wilderness. We roamed the Earth picking fruits and preyed on smaller animals in order to survive. We knew when to run and when to attack, when to wait and where to mark our territory. We knew that there was only one rule in the wilderness - prey, or be preyed upon.
Things have changed a lot since then. We have established cities where we build housing out of artificial materials. We bend nature to make our civilizations work, we slash through it with asphalt, connecting our homes. We have upped the scale when it comes to production, creating more and more and even more until we don’t even know if it’s enough. We like things in positive numbers, never minding the surplus of food we gather that goes to waste or the surplus of animals we hunt and they eventually go extinct. We have become the ultimate consumer, consuming the homes and lives of the other organisms sharing this wonderful planet with us.
One of the animals that defies our megalomaniacal tendencies is the deer. It seems that no matter how much we expand, it is always there to come knocking at our doors, reminding us that we’ve stepped the border and this is their land, not ours, that we need to take a step back because the wilderness is getting crowded. The roads that crisscross the nature in which deer live are a serious threat to their wellbeing, as well as the wellbeing of the drivers that may come into the deer’s path.
Deer are known as being one of, if not the most timid creatures on the face of this planet. If you ever wanted to approach one in the wild, somewhere in a forest or on a plain, the animal would run off, never to be seen again. They trust practically no one, since they have so many predators out there. However, in recent years, there have been accounts where wild deer would actually approach a human and stay long enough for at least one photo, if not an entire video. We know of one instance when a wild deer actually befriended a deer hunter, no less! The video at the top of the page explores another situation when while driving up their street, the people that made the video managed to come across a large group of deer exploring the neighborhood. So cool! Watch!
There is an entire hear of deer exploring the neighborhood. even a little one can be seen hopping along with mom checking out the grass growing on the well-trimmed lawns. They are not even a bit afraid of the passing car, on the contrary, one deer even nears it as if to check who is driving inside. The spectacle is so odd that at one point the lady shooting the video says: “Let’s get out of here. Wow!” They look like humans are encroaching their habitat and they have come to an official visit to announce this can be no longer tolerated. And you know what? They would be right.
